not help save those people. >> greta: congressman, thank you sir. so, is the obama administration deliberately stonewalling about libya? as we said a group of seniors is demanding answers today. senator john powell joins us? >> good evening, greta. >> greta: released seven letters from senator mccain and lindsay graham. they don't get answered. they were going over a period of time. are these letters sort of futile zwres to your or something happen from them? >> no, i've read the letters they ask the precisely the right questions. first of all, katherine heritage has done good reporting on day from one. david ignasius and he complimented fox news for raising these important questions. he listed a group of questions. some of which you raised here. he also says the time line of events should be provided before the election, not after the election. if i could make that point right now, you have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do. whether his orders were clear that this has to be cleared up before the election. so we the people that emp
, again, i don't have any data to -- >> eliptcal criticism of the obama administration. >> no. it's the -- >> so generally everybody. >> everybody here. including myself. >> it's a -- there has not been a sense of urgency. there was no sense of urgency in the bush administration. i think the obama administration has shown more urgency and at real political cost. and let me say the obama administration has begun to address some of the factors. the health care reform includes the first attempt to put in place across the board ways of slowing the rate of growth of health care costs. now, i think those provisions are -- we need to be -- they need to be on a bigger scale and they need to be stronger but they're there. it's the first time we've put them there. and they've also made a concerted effort to increase energy efficiency across businesses as well as individuals. that's also that's the only effective way we can address energy costs as a factor in the business costs that squeeze wages. >> let me ask one more question because we have people here should get the chance to ask. i rem
it in a safer, cleaner way than they are, but the obama administration put the just say no to coal. that cuts out half of the present source of electrical power in the country. tell me how a country can grow, a country that grows and a country that needs more energy. you tell me how this country can have hybrid vehicles that are pugged into the wall if we don't provide more electricity. i mean, this is like living in some kind of fantasy land. this great wonderful hybrid vehicles have got to get pluggedded into the wall. if we had hybrid vehicles driving around the country, we need 35% more electricity. well, we're on a -- we are on a path to less electricity, not more. 50% is gone. that's going to keep going down because we put a stop on coal. okay, where else do we get electricity from? well, we get it from nuclear power. nuclear, we have 104 nuclear power plants. they supply anywhere from 20%-25% of the electricity. in my city, it's 25%. nuclear power, we have not licensed a nuclear power plant other than one in the last 30 years. the others are getting real old, and there's no appetite on
the start of the obama administration, the two parties have been at war about the wisdom, legality and practicality of the affordable care act. what's next when it comes to healthcare? maria hinojosa of need to know has that. >> it's been two and a half years since congress passed the president's controversial affordable care act and four months since the supreme court upheld the heart of the legislation. but most of the bill, which eventually might insure another 30 million people, actually doesn't go into effect until 2014. whether it ever does will depend on what happens next tuesday and not just in the presidential race. >> what the court did not do on it's last day in session, i will do on my first day if elected president of the united states and that is i will act to repeal obamacare. >> mitt romney has said again and again he will get rid of obamacare as soon as he takes office. whether he can might be another story. >> it'd be pretty difficult for him to actually repeal the healthcare law within 24 hours. he would need to go to congress and we'd still have to wait and see
the obama administration tried to mislead americans about the terror attack in libya. 44% say yes, 47% say no. >> the american people deserve the truth. >> four republican senators today fired off a letter to the president, demanding to know, "what steps you and your administration took or failed to take before, during and after the terrorist attack to protect american lives." >> they are stonewalling us. i think they are trying to run out the clock until this election. >> republican lindsey graham today sent a separate letter to tunisian officials requesting they give the u.s. government access to al harzi, the only person in custody over the benghazi attack. >> i frankly am offended by the administration not being honest with the american people. and sharing any information with congress. >> senator gram told me that tunisian government responded he could submit questions in writing to the suspect and they would try to get answers. he said it's not good enough. he got tunisian foreign minister on the phone and graham vowed he would put pressure on the tunisian government and is call tong
to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and amounted the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. 1- 800-621-fema or disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the campaign trail in wisconsin, but still focused on storm recovery back east. the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters l
klein, author of the new york times best-seller, the amateur, all about the obama administration. good to see you. let's start with, first, the sound that we just shared with our audience. bill clinton not really performing up to bill clinton standards. he was mocking governor romney, talking about, well, i don't know about other folks, but in arkansas we would have liked president obama to have had the power to turn back the seas yesterday. i mean, it did not make a lick of sense. >> with obama himself, we have in this campaign, turned the tide back, he'll the planet, brought everybody together. it was he that made these averages comments. lou: as a candidate, as i recall. rummy mocked him in the republican national convention. there was nothing, you know, current about what he was being quoted as saying by president clinton. a contemporaneously. it was a silly, silly remark. >> it did not make any sense. a freer talking about sarcasm, who has been the most sarcastic in this whole campaign? it has been barack obama. i think he is taking a lesson from michele, his wife. super sarcastic
it comes to these problems. >> reporter: now later today top officials from the obama administration will be fanning out across the impacted areas in new jersey and also in new york visiting hospitals, visiting with utilities. the idea here, according to the obama administration, is for these officials to see the progress firsthand and also come back with potential solutions, help the need -- help, rather, the things that they need get to the location in a timely manner. >> dan, the president has incredible schedule over the next few days, campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, and virginia, just to name a few. why does he and his camp feel it's so important to spend as much time as they can in so many places in such a small amount of time? >> reporte >> reporter: because these are the states where the race will be decided. you listed all the important states, florida, colorado, nevada. but here in ohio, this is the biggest, the most important of the battleground states. the president was here yesterday, made three stops making two stops here. we'll return here again. and the message
the obama -- i mean, from the bush to the obama administration in the transition. the presidential candidates, even the nominee's authority do not get really president-elect bush called the stuff in terms of regimes. the two candidates i assume governor romney is getting these now. the nominees of the party are offering intelligence briefings by career people, but the analytical or what we used to call briefings, which is one of the many euphemisms from cia's panchayat to purge from my memory because i can't get it out of my head. but their analytical. they are not operational. they're not given a lot of specific details about agents and agent operation that only happens once the election takes place. once it is in the case of the new president, obviously a president obama is reelected, this will not happen. but that is when they get the review above the ongoing covert programs. that is some president-elect obama first had a detailed briefing on the enhanced interrogation program. by that time, much of it, or suppose "the new york times" probably had 85% of it. but that wasn't the
. it was taken over by obama in the meantime. the a bomb administration picking up for bush came up with a deal to save three companies, general motors, chrysler and delphi. what is delphi? delphi is the old telco auto parts division of gm. you know delco batteries. we had gm that desperate to cut off its own parts and set off delphi as a separate company which immediately pretty quickly went bankrupt. well, down went the vulture's and they pick.delphi corp. out of bankruptcy court for 67 cents, a darned good deal for the entire auto parts division of general motors. 67 cents a share. within two years they flipped it. they went public at $22 a share. share. that is it 3200% prophet that they weren't done. they weren't done. delphi had 29 plans in the u.s. and the delphi group sold it back to gm and the rest, every single plant was sold, was sent off to china. every single uaw job, everyone, 25,200 uaw workers including -- i got a call from michael moore. his dad had the delphi plant and flint michigan. every job sent to china, every one. now that was not the plan. obama's administration came up
. with representatives from the administrations of george h. w. bush through the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offer their expertise and experience as a look back on the use of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. wish to offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school of foreign service, and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our countries most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to doctor victor cha a professor in government and asian studies and director of asian studies here in georgetown. carol lancaster, our dean of the school of foreign service, and doctor abraham kim, the interim president of the korea economic institute, for making this event possible. were also aren't up with is representative of the department of education, and we thank the department for its recognition of our asian studies program title vi, national resources center for east asia. it's fitting we gather today for this conversation just days before the presidential election.
to address the panel. you know have six prosecutions in the obama administration after three prior to -- after three prior prosecutions. you now have a press that is not just the new york times, not just the "washington post," but wikileaks, individuals no longer needing the mainstream media to put documents, formerly classified documents into the public environment. so it is a changing landscape on both sides. different kind of media and i think a different attitude in government, at least that is what appears to us. the rise and concerns about terrorism and then the concern for government secrecy, and the ability to transfer large amounts of data electronically. you know, if you think back to the pentagon papers, daniel ellsworth has to come to the new york times or a paper like the new york times to get the secret's out, and that was the only way to make them public, not so now. when the government wanted to do terrible things, they actually had to send people to break into his psychiatrist office. no longer necessary. they now have other tools for doing those kinds of things. i
. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. the president took office, there were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of the bush administration into the obama administration. and now the fight has been, the political fight has been over the durability of the recovery and jobs since then. when you go to the right of that chart you can see we have been adding jobs now for two years but we haven't been adding necessarily enough jobs to every month keep up with the increase of people in the working-age population, and to recover all of those jobs that had been lost. so that's where we stand right now. 125,000 jobs is the forecast for today. about an hour and a half, and 7.9% is the unemployment rate. it's the last big hurdle before the election. the last big piece of economic news for both campaigns, and for people to weigh before they make the decision on who to vote for. >> it's not just economic news. it has all the political implications. especially in the final days. that chart we've seen on the political campaign on both sides of the debate. christine, than
on jobs, did the obama administration try something similar to your jobs for all program with a seamless package? how do you compare the two? rozum: no, because the stimulus was not meant to be a permanent public jobs program and the cost of those jobs were skyhigh. it cost almost $800 billion, yet another jobs created or saved for only 3 million. the numbers we're talking are similar, 800 million, 800 billion, excuse me but to greet over 10 million jobs. and so direct public employment is a little different than giving tax breaks to companies, to create jobs. because the job creators aren't getting it done. they are not creating jobs. >> moderator: dan the thick, a follow up on jobs. you think under a second obama administration, should you return to washington could you create a more favorable tax environment for businesses or hospitals to grow so that could be more jobs? maffei: there's no question tax reform would be very, very important and if you think we need to lower rates but get rid of a lot of loopholes, particularly corporate loopholes, the ones that ship jobs overseas. cease
blasting the obama administration for missing the deadline for disclosing the regulatory plans and the economic impact. oklahoma republican james inhof says the second straight legal deadline the white house missed. it missed hit the week. friday we take a special look at the coal industry. what it's up against. what is on the line in this election. fair and balanced look friday. on the coal industry. brace yourself for the possibility of another healthcare fight at the u.s. supreme court. believe it or not. the justice department is agreeing with liberty university that last summer's decision did not address several related issues. it says it does not oppose the school's request for a rehearing. if the supreme court grants the university's rehearing request, the case will first have to be heard at the fourth circuit court. >>> we are approaching the final weekend and several of the battleground states are still in play, of course. that's why they are battlegrounds. we will talk to experts from three of the battleground states when we come back. [ male announcer ] red lobster's
never happened. it all began under the obama administration. it just astounds me how the whole platform is based on george bush's policies. this 12 million at job creation is, again, just the smoke and mirrors. they use this every time they run. bush said he would lower taxes, create jobs. the tea party said they were born to create jobs. it seems like the same rhetoric over and over again. guest: great question, doug. i was critical of the bush presidency. we funded things like no child left behind. we created prescription drug programs in the not pay for them. the american people held the republican party responsible for it and threw them out of office. they are focused on creating jobs, growing the economy, and not focusing on big spending programs we know the american people do not want. you have the commitment of republicans that are no. 1 jobs focus will be on the economy. host: a.j. spiker, the chair of the iowa republican party joining us this morning from des moines. we will continue our series on "washington journal" on battleground states tomorrow with ohio. for those of you
. >> were going to move onto a topic, a foreign policy question. congresswoman, you come to obama administration of course we seem has been criticized for its handling of the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in libya. this attack resulted in the death of ambassador chris stevens but we also now know that he made multiple attempts to get more security and that these efforts went unheeded. do you believe that the obama administration mishandled the situation even after and also in the aftermath of the attack? what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? hochul: absolutely mishandled, and to learn how that their cries for help from people asking for additional support, and to know they were unanswered is unacceptable. estimate of the house armed service committee when we get back to washington will conduct oversight hearings and make sure that our ambassadors and all the consulate personnel across this globe are protected. we've got to make sure they have within me. i would not do as republican leadership in congress, cut $300 million from embassy security
this happening. i was very significant about the obama administration was once it happened they didn't sort of look around and say what should we do? they didn't kind of pulled back. the kind of const on it. i think it is one thing whoever is running foreign policy in a month or two months time, with the good or bad happens get moving on it. and i think the obama administration really moved on this issue in burma and i think i felt the process go forward. so it's not just surprises. it's how you react to a 60 obama administration did a great job on burma. >> for the first time in my life, i think i'll probably just listen and observe. my staff is gone i cannot believe it. chris is right and these are good people and you hate to put them through having to work for people like ice, but still. i will say talk about strategic surprises. i never in a million years thought i would come home to my daughter's all doing this cowboy south korean tribe around my living room, singing a korean song called style. i didn't think i would have been. >> were going to go to the next part, which are questions.
the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about today's report. busier highways.see usn on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. this is hayden. he's five years that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenue - bypasses sacramento and sends every k through 12 dollar straight to our local schools... every school. for them. for all of us. vote yes on thirty-eight. month there was quite a bit of controversy when the jobs
years of an obama administration would change any of that and particularly momentum on the economic front was just something that this board just couldn't see. governor romney by virtue of his experience and strong business acumen coming through the executive ranks of what he did in massachusetts, the board felt very strongly and confidently that he was the one who could best position the country for an economic revival and jump start the economy with with meaningful salaries and jobs. >> what's the immediate reaction of iowans to your paper's endorsement? >> you know, thomas, the great thing about being in iowa is we have incredibly smart readers and voters. this is the first republican endorsement we've made since 1972. we've got some of them right and some wrong. there's some you wish you could take back, i'm sure. this isn't about "the register" or our endorsement. this is a state with enkridably thoughtful and very, very smart readers and voters who will listen to us and also more importantly sit around the kitchen table before they go out on election day or cast an early ballo
implication that the barack obama administration has. when i listen to these republicans, they're despicable. they practice all types of obstacles in front of this man. they lie. romney is a serial liar. host: let's go back to the economy. talk to me about the comparisons in your mind about the u.s. economy and overseas economy and why your optimism is, in fact, or, as you say, based on how our economy is doing versus economies from overseas. >> well, relatively speaking, when you take a look at some of the european economies, particularly some of the cutbacks in government and all it did was fire the economy up into a worse situation, when you take a look at france, they elected a new president there, and he's trying to implement the same type of progressive policies that the obama administration has done. it's clear that stimulus has worked despite the distortions about it. it appears this appears to be working in some other parts of europe. therefore, i think when you take a relative view of it, and you understand that we're recovering from the deepest recession since the depression, i me
for the kingman. >> it's about foreign policy. the obama: administration now says terrorists were behind the murder of u.s. ambassador in libya, christopher stevens, should the u.s. have known more about what was going on in libarch better security for our people? what more do you think needs to be done to fight terrorism? >> look, karen, i have taken a classified brief so i cannot go into extensive details here but it's already apparent that we made mistakes. the president has come forward and taken responsibility for that. clearly more should have been done. what's important right now is we mourn the losses of the families, that we learn what happened. that we don't rush to judgment. we figure out -- we certainly will find the perpetrators and there will be justice for those that did this. then it's important that we learn from these experiences. i will tell you that i post military operations in libya last year. and i say that after very careful consideration and thought. i spent a lifetime in national security. i also think we need to think and act differently. absolutely we need the
and suddenly this happened. what is very significant about the obama administration was at once it happened, they did not necessarily look around and say, what should we do? they did not hold back. the kind of pounced on it. whoever is running foreign policy amongst their time, when something good or bad happens, get moving on it. i think the obama administration really moved on this issue in burma. i think this has helped the process go forward. it is not just surprises, but how you react to them. i think obama did a great job on burma. >> for the first time in my life, i think i will listen and observe. [laughter] my staff is going, i cannot believe it. i hate having to put them through working for people like us. i will say this about strategic surprises -- i never in a million years thought that i would come home to my daughters doing this cowboy thing dance around the living room singing "gangnam style." [laughter] >> i do not know if we will be able to take everybody's questions. if you can state who you are and possibly address your question to one of our panelists. please make your
supported job killing policies of the obama administration. if we want people back to work we cannot have obamacare. its stifles the economy, and it does not reform health care. it is going to take $10 billion from the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c. compan, there a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am running with is hyper partisan. he mentioned rosa, and she has gotten off hold of me and said he has not been much of the health on the subcommittee, and quite frankly, what needs to be done is people need to work together as americans. is when doesion thi politics trump jobs? is it when clean air or clean water is at stake or perhaps pol
, i question for jared. why did the obama administration it do more -- why did not the obama administration do more for poor communities given his work as a community organizer? some insight from your white house position. >> if you looked, and going to quote one of my colleagues, you can go on the web site of our institution, cbp.org you will find a number of papers but look at the impact on poverty of the stimulus, the recovery act. the recovery act lifted millions of people out of poverty. expanded the earned income tax credit. if you are not working, it did not help you. but a lot of people kept their jobs. the child tax credit was made refundable down to lower income levels. lifted a lot of people of poverty. the tax credit helped low-income workers, later the payroll tax credit helped. the expansion of unemployment insurance. critical. you heard, we will probably launch market poverty went up and 2011. on question only, if that is true, one of the reasons is because we pulled back some of the safety net in terms of extended unemployment insurance programs running out fo
in the obama administration, but that's a program that was really begun under george w. bush who increased it tremendously then. there's kind after bipartisan consensus that is increasing a certain amount of dependency on government. >> steve: and it has to do with the economic circumstances we find ourselves in right now. look at skyrocketing people who are suddenly on disability simply because, many surmise, they've run out of government benefits and only way they can get money back in the kitty. >> well, republicans are worried probably more about the increase in welfare spending i don't know what is warranted by the economic down turn because clearly, with what happened to the economy in 2009, 2010, a lot more people than usual were going to need some economic assistance from the government. no doubt about that. but the problem is, is that the spending has increased beyond that at a higher, greater pace than what would have been warranted just by our hard times. >> clayton: byron york, always good to see you on the show. we thank you for getting up with us on a sunday. >> thank you, gu
obama has made. now that the obama administration has made the tough decisions, now mr. romney wants to take credit and hoodwink the voters. he had a fair chance to win in 2008 and then he could decide to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney
.com. as the benghazi scandal continues to unfold, calls are mounting for the obama administration to explain why military forces were not deployed during the deadly attack. last night on fox, the father of a slain navy seal demanded answers about yesy his son's repeated calls for help were denied. senator mccain is among those requesting release of surveillance material. we have more now, to keep us updated. jennifer, what's the latest? >> reporter: the latest, it is correct, i have learned from a senior intelligence source there is a complete video, internal surveillance video at the consulate that show who is the attackers were, what they looked like, the u.s. government is in possession of that video. and it would shed some light on who it is that is behind the attack. what we have been reporting and we have a source that was present during the attack on the annex, the cia annex, about a half a mile-- the second location, away from the consulate, about a half a mile away, i'm told, on foot, about a mile, if you drive. our source is telling us that about 9:40 p.m., they placed their first rad
administration. certainly, we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact of the matter is the economy has not improved to the degree we have averaged 8% over and the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. good continue to look for change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again while also addressing the tremendous debt that this country has. $16 trillion in debt increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of obama, the national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is a horrible thing to give to our children, our grandchildren and great- grandchildren. we just cannot keep going with these tax policies. host: one last call for you on the independent line from michigan. victoria, you are wrong with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: i wanted to make a clarification for a caller that called in earlier that had a question about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. and not being made clear enough, i feel, to
the obama administration took over this, their main objective was to keep costs high, at least to keep union costs high. >> that's the point with the pension. charles: and burdens general motors to this day which is why we're owed so much money and we're in trouble. >> what bothers me more about the fiasco, the fact that senior debt, and when ways with a in the business, make less debt, but have senior security and they ignored bankruptcy law. charles: and a lot of people, their rational, this would only hurt the fat cats and when we know this hurt a whole lot of people. >> what about the delphi investors who really lost on this one. let's take a look what they did in the gm bankruptcy, it's another case of sub bosub board nating one group. and board says, off shore earnings and makes sense they would not issue their earnings when the markets are closed. you would think they would wait until the market is open. does that mean that ford had, as you said, a good reason to issue them because they were so good. does that mean that people that are issuing them maybe are under what was estimated?
. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anything from his committee. every time he makes a misstatement, he never comes back and tries to correct it to explain the coup methodology behind that? guest: biden not get that question. -- i did not get that question. host: he had concerns he was raising about the truth telling of that. guest: i think it is clear that the president has not been a firm with china. we have copyrights and trademarks being piloted with c
-- that did start at the end of the bush administration. for years past the start of the obama administration, we have addressed concerns. the economy has not improved to the degree >> this is horrible to give to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. we cannot continue on with these tax policies. >> one more call from you. >> good morning. i wanted to make a verification from a caller from earlier about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. it is not being clear and enough to our voters that there is a difference between a private-sector union in a government tax-funded union. in the private sector, the union leaders and the workers negotiate. in the government-funded unions, the union leaders take the news -- dues from the workers, support elected officials that they are interested in getting into office. the union leaders negotiated with those elected officials that are then paid for with funded tax dollars. that is why jfk was against the government tax-funded unions. i do not feel there -- there is a huge difference. people do not understand this. >> mr.
